Whilst we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information contained on our website, the Orkney Tourist Guides Association (OTGA) cannot be held responsible for any loss consequential or otherwise as a result of any omission or inaccuracy on our part.
OTGA guides possess an official STGA membership card - possession of a valid card proves public liability and professional indemnity insurance - however it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the insurance status of your guide at the time of booking.
Driver-guides and their vehicles are licensed by the Orkney Islands Council or the Department of Transport depending on the size of the vehicle, and whilst we believe that all our driver-guides are suitably insured and licensed it is your responsibility to satisfy yourself regarding this at the time of booking.
